Centenary of the Great War - an evening of stories and songs marking the contribution made by the people of Alderton to the First World War.
Sad,funny and remarkable, the programme for this event gives you the chance to hear some of the real-lifestories that lie behind the names on our war memorial and sing along to popular songs of the day. You can also view a display of memorabilia collected from residents.
To be followed on Sunday 11th November at 11 am: Notice of a special service of remembrance marking the centenary of the Armistice at the War Memorial.

This year we are pleased to welcome two new charities: Acorns Children's Hospice and Farms for City Children, an organisation set up by War Horse author, Michael Morpurgo, to give deprived children a chance of a farm holiday. Do visit these stalls and give them your support, but there are also many old favourites waiting for you, including the RNLI, RSPB, Guide Dogs, LINC, the National Trust, Cobalt, Parkinson's and Riding for the Disabled. So whether you are looking for chutneys or calendars, stocking fillers or tea towels, Christmas cards or cakes, this is the place to come!
As in previous years, we are asking for your help with baking for the MacMillan stall. Last year, we raised £400 with cakes, pies and quiches - can we beat it this year? Drop your contributions off at Gantier, bottom of Church Road, during the day on Friday 9th November, or deliver to the Village Hall Friday evening between 6-7pm. Ring Sue Parry on 01242 620343 with details.
